Actually press A, edit the value, press enter to confirm it (you are 
back in the serial device menu. Then press ESC twice (exit the main 
menu). It should print 'Initializing Modem'. After that you should be 
able to type the AT command.
If that does not work for you, you can install the 'cu' package 
(confirmed to be present in OM 2008.08 testing). And 
execute 'cu -l /dev/pts/3' (adapt the device path) to bring up a chat 
session with the modem. Try typing 'AT' end ENTER and it should respond 
with 'OK'. Then enter the AT sequence and exit cu using '~.' ENTER.
